. and then there's some serious issues, not only syria, but the reality is if barack obama doesn't want to be the american president on whose watch iran gets a nuclear weapon and on whose watch the two-state solution to the israeli-palestinian problem expires, he's going to have to find a way to work with netanyahu. and by the way, vice versa, because the prime minister bears a lot of responsibility for the soap opera that has been the u.s./israeli relationship. >> let's talk about iran and nuclear weapons. there's these stringent like terrible sanctions now placed on iran but that doesn't seem to be stopping the country from developing a nuclear weapon, so what can israel or the united states do now? i mean what will the -- if we could be a fly on the wall, what are they discussing as an option? >> look, i think the president is telling the prime minister that they have done about all they can on the sanctions side. now they're trying diplomacy. i think he's going to make a pitch to the prime minister. give me the time and the space to work with the p-5 plus 1 to see if we can work out

in additional aid, and mr. obama also pushed back at some criticisms of why the u.s. has not intervened militarily in syria. take a listen. >> you know, i think it's fair to say that the united states often finds itself in a situation where if it goes in militarily it's criticized, and if it doesn't go in militarily, then people say why aren't you doing something militarily? and, you know, my response at this stage is to make sure that what we do contributes to bringing an end to the bloodshed as quickly as possible. >> reporter: the president should be back in the u.s. just shy of midnight tonight, but while mr. obama heads home, secretary of state john kerry is remaining in the region. he has a pair of meetings today, one of them with the palestinian president mahmoud abbas. that's taking place in jordan. another one that will take place over dinner with the prime minister, benjamin netanyahu of israel. just another signal of just how important this issue is to the administration as they're showing once again their commitment to try to revive these peace talks. alex? >> all right, pet

, there is no punishment assad of syria using chemical weapons. obama said same thing about iran, north korea, no ex-nukes for you guys. what does that mean? if his credibility is zero because he hasn't stood by the red line i think that is problem. the problem is the rest of the world using chemicals. bill: how you interpret that if you're leading some other nations in the region either you have them or want to have them. one more question. >> yeah. bill: it appears over the past seven days and i think this paralleled to president obama's trip to israel that this story moved at a level it has not moved before. >> absolutely. bill: senator kerry in iraq and afghanistan with iran sandwiched between the two of them. do you get the sail sense and if so are with is it going? >> i think it is speeding up, whatever happens in syria i don't think it will drag on for another two years. the problem with it once assad leaves and it collapses, it gets worse. it doesn't get better. there are a lot of our militias, there are democratic pro-democracy guys and islamic rad kls and al qaeda elements in the groups. t

-automatic weapons. meanwhile breaking news in syria. chemical weapons in the passive civil war. this as president obama is on his way to the region tonight on his first visit to israel and the west bank since he became president and as 55 people were killed and more than 200 wounded in battle scenes all over iraq on the 10th anniversary of shock and awe. i want to bring in at the start of this from cnn, life in iraq, arwa damon. another terrible day in baghdad. the anniversary of george bush's announcement that america was at war with iraq. 55 people killed. more than 200 wounded. very hard to see that there is anything but chronic instability and continued hideous bloodshed there. what is your take? >> it's such a tragedy really the way things have unfolded in iraq. just looking at iraqi faces, seeing how pale they had become. we are hearing after one attack after another. people's voices actually began trembling. this is violence that, first of all, the iraqis never even imagined would end up being the outcome of america's war in iraq. so many of them hoped and dreamed they would have true free

president obama's view in terms of military engagement? we talk about syria a lot and there's some thinking, there's some wisdom out there that he doesn't want to get involved there because he understands what a quote-unquote quagmire it can be to get involved in a situation where there is no clear end point. >> well i think first of all, he's the commander-in-chief because of that decision. we, we forget because by the time we came into office in 2009, it was all about the economy. but the animating event really for three years, leading up to that election, was iraq. i definitely think, i think it is, i think it will have a huge impact, it has on this commander-in-chief and will have on future commanders in chief. because they understand that without some popular support, it's hard to go about doing -- a lot of military action. without some broad popular support among people to do something like this, there's very little taste to park tens of thousands of people in a place like syria. that even though it's important, has less of a connection to folks here at home. they understand now proba
: later this week, president obama travels to israel, the west bank and jordan. iran, syria, and reviving the middle east peace process will be high on the agenda. the president faces challenges bridging differences between israelis and palestinians, and fractures within both camps. we'll examine those divisions tonight and tomorrow night. jeffrey brown begins with israel's new government. brown: in jerusalem today, workers literally rolled out the red carpet as part of a final preparations ahead of president obama's trip to the region. at the same time, israel's new coalition government was itself installed. led again by prime minister benjamin netanyahu but including new key players. its formation took weeks of negotiations after netanyahu won re-election in january's parliamentary elections. a victory accompanied by the surprisingly strong second-place finish of yair lapid. today netanyahu had to say about his new government stance on relations with the palestinians. >> with a palestinian partner who is willing to conduct negotiations in good faith, israel will be prepared for historic
minister netanyahu be asking of the united states in terms of ending the on flikt in syria? >> well, first of all, the president, president obama's, credibility is very, very critical. they is said from the white house podium that any use from the chemical weapons would be a red line. presumably this would be the trigger for more american involvement. as you know, craig, u.s. has been behind other allies, britain and france pressing on the u.s. to do more. we have done human. aid, nonlethal aid, helped to the combatance, but not what they have been pleading for. which is more weaponry. so there's a lot of pressure on the white house to become more involved in syria. this is skoesten shl because they have to wonder about what will follow the civil war. if assad is going to fall, will it be another vacuum like the vk um that has taken place, leading to huge securityish a us in egypt next door. egypt has a government. not entirely functioning government but it hasn't cancelled the historic peace treaty with israel. but security situation in egypt is collapsing all around it and that is the re
equipment, during the human rights crisis. inlight of russia's policy syria, i believe the obama administration's string of concessions to moscow must stop. i wanted to hear your thoughts on the rebels, and what will we do with countries that are helping syria? >> with respect to the rebels and who they are, i divide them into two categories. oppositionlitical and military opposition. both are not entirely unified, although, on the political side, the coalition that shows the prime minister yesterday, they are more and more unified. they have representatives from inside and outside the country. on the armed opposition side, they have established a supreme military command headed by a man whom i have met several times. he has said to us and others that he will respect a political deal worked out by the political opposition. he does not perceive that the threat -- the free syrian army should have a political role in the future of syria. to be very frank, that is one of the reasons we decided to provide direct food and medical assistance to his command to help him within the context
and the u.s., winding down the war in afghanistan and dealing with tensions in iraq, syria, and the middle east. >> ifill: then, we update the movement on immigration reform, as president obama uses a citizenship ceremony to prod congress to send him a bill. >> woodruff: we have two economic stories from abroad. margaret warner examines the last-minute financial rescue for cyprus. >> ifill: and ray suarez reports on ireland's comeback after the global recession. >> suarez: rather than wait around for the return of jobs that may never come back, thousands of irish are starting their own businesses. >> woodruff: plus, jeffrey brown talks to the co-authors of a new book about murder, murderers, and the death penalty at the supreme court. >> we're both intrigued by the stories behind those crimes. there are human beings, victims, perpetrators, families. we take it literally from the scene of the crime to the court. >> ifill: that's all ahead on tonight's newshour. >> major funding for the pbs newshour has been provided by: moving our economy for 160 years. bnsf, the engine that connects us. >>

underway if syria, seriously, is using chemical weapons or has but some law make he is -- lawmakers here say it is clear they did. president obama says this would be a game-changer. general jack keane is here with his take on this growing crisis. >> you have a government that we believe and we have solid information, by the way the international community believes this, has chemical weapons. has put them in a position to be used on short notice, and i believe, there's a high probability has been used with that whole body over the last two years. hey, our salads.

. >> president obama this afternoon meets with jordan king, a key ally and the violence in syria will be at the top of agenda. >> we continue to follow the two big breaking traffic stories we have, including a body on 280 and boulders on 101 causing problems. >> triggering sig-alerts. >> that is right, two separate sig-alerts, and sky 7 h.p.d. is over the waldo grade in sausalito area with boulders and extensive damage to at least five cars which are now towed away. hopefully, something will be done about the right lanes but c.h.p. is afraid the hillside is not stable so they could keep them off limits for the commute. southbound 101 is jamming through the waldo tunnel so the alternates around this, golden gate ferries are a great way do go through sausalito and avoid the area altogether and take the richmond-san rafael bridge. in san jose there was an early fatal accident blocking the two right lanes southbound 280, you can see traffic is getting by but it is continuing to be slow as the commute is underway in earnest this morning and an investigation is ongoing here and the alt
alliance with egypt. obama does not have the ability. >> sean: jordan may not be far behind and syria is going the muslim brotherhood. >> he was most tossed out president in american-israel relations and before the election and same is true today. he didn't set the reset button on this trip. it was embarrassing and refused to go to the parliament to address the officials. it's self-styled and hand picked group of students and young people and he told them to ignore their elected representatives that somehow risk a verse and their parents who have some sort to overcome the legacy of mistrust. to tell holocaust descendants there is no healthy reason for skepticism is embarrassing and wrong. >> sean: ryan. >> let me give you an idea how little the current administration knows about the muslim brotherhood. they are celebrating the fact that the syrian rebels chose as the interim prime minister as an american, but this guy is tied to the u.s. muslim brotherhood. and u.s. ambassador for syria and the syrian brotherhood backed this individual and they said i don't know what his political aff

of president obama's discussions with the king tonight and tomorrow along with the crisis in neighboring syria. >> let's talk about syria. let's start request the fact that i think 450,000 syrians have fled to jordan. and jordan's having some economic difficulties. what's that conversation between the president and king abdullah likely to be like? >> there will be the huge humanitarian crisis that jordan is facing. but politically, the king and the president face some common ground here. king abdullah is very concerned that the syrian rebels if they take over would, would establish a far more sort of conservative sunni muslim government that would be potentially in league with forces in his country that are seeking to topple the monarchy, so could create some destabilizing factors in his country. certainly the concern about who those rebels are and what sort of government they would form is a concern shared by the obama administration. at the same time, both president obama and king abdullah have called for president assad to accept down and have made it clear that they don't see much of a fut
room." >>> jake, thanks very much. happening now, breaking news. were chemical weapons used in syria in recent days? the first u.s. assessment is just in. our pentagon correspondent barbara starr, right in the middle of president obama's visit to israel iran's supreme leader makes a chilling new threat. and did the u.s. secret service accidently fire a shotgun near iran's president when he was in new york? and why did iran keep it quiet all these years? i'm wolf blitzer. you're in the situation room. >>> let's begin with the breaking news. the stakes couldn't be higher. president obama has warned use of chemical weapons by syria would be a game changer, his words. the u.s. has been investigating words of chemical attacks. now the first assessment shows that chemical weapons were apparently not used. let's go straight to our pentagon correspondent barbara starr. what's the latest? what are you learning? >> reporter: wolf, i've been talking to officials all day and they tell me the initial preliminary intelligence assessment is this. chemical weapons were not used. a chemical substance
on president obama's trip to the region live from jerusalem. >>> the united nations is going to launch an investigation into whether chemical weapons were indeed used in syria. both the syrian regime and the opposition asked the u.n. to look into the claim. >> the demand came after both sides accused each other of firing chemical weapons on tuesday. opposition groups insist rebels don't have access to such material. >> and u.s. officials saying they welcome the move. >>> first up, north korea's new and threatening message. pyongyang warning today it has the capability to strike u.s. bases in guam and japan. >> matthew chance joining us now from seoul, south korea. matthew, is this north korea's typical bluster or something more ominous here? >> it's really difficult to say, fredricka, because it's such an unpredictable regime. but what we do know is these threats are being made all the time now. there's a lot of tension that's been growing on the korean peninsula, tension that is being fueled by the statement that are increasingly coming out of pyongyang. barely a day can pass it seems
potentially at even more horrific scenes we already seen in syria and the international community have to act on that additional information. >> president obama and prime minister netanyahu appear to be getting along as well as they ever have. their position on iran seems to be aligning more than in the past. they agree iran is a year away from obtaining a nuclear weapon. >> i am absolutely convinced that the president is determined to prevent iran from getting illegal will nuclear weapons. >> there's not a lot of daylight between our country's assessments in terms of where iran is right now. >> the president has a lot of meetings. he will be the guest of honor at an official dinner. >> peter doocy in washington. thank you so much, peter. >> it is time for your 5@5:30. top five stories making news at this hour outrage this morning that a suspected member of al qaeda plot to do kill american troops was secretly being prosecut prosecuted. adam haroon has been charged in civilian court noting to kill u.s. diplomats in nigeria. he was extradited here last year. leaders are live individual the oba
question. let's look ahead to tomorrow when the president will be traveling to jordan. president obama has been very care wfl the u.s. involvement in syria but jordan is of course the country dealing with the syrian refugee crisis. more than 450,000 syrians have fled to jordan so far. what do you expect to come out of tomorrow's meeting with king abdullah? >> well, king abdullah is a key player in the middle east. jordan has always been helpful to middle east peace process. i think again, a reinforcement of an already strong relationship, countries like jordan help with the syrian issue on refugees. you have to keep jordan involved because they can be very constructive. again, their relationship is good. but being in the region, not going to jordan, especially with the syrian situation exploding, is not a good sign. so the president has covered his bases. he's been to the palestinian authority. a very strong trip and israel's symbolism, personal connection with bibi, laying out new policy. and then with the king of jordan, going more into regional issues like syria and iran makes a lot of
